AKIPRESS.COM - leo “The Revenant,” the 20th Century Fox frontier revenge tale featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, was nominated for a dozen Academy Awards, including best picture, and will lead the pack in the annual race for Hollywood’s highest honors.

“Mad Max: Fury Road,” Warner Bros.’ revival of the 1980s-era dystopian series, garnered 10 nominations, including best picture, to place second, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, California. Eight movies will vie for the top Oscar, including the oddsmakers’ favorite “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe’s coverage of sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests.

A diverse lineup of films has made this year’s awards season tough to predict. Going into the nominations, “The Revenant” and “The Martian” got a boost after winning the top prizes at the Golden Globes earlier this month. Their respective directors also were among five nominated for prizes from the Directors Guild of America, whose winners often align with the Oscars.

“The big news is ‘The Revenant’ overperformed,” said Paul Sheehan, executive editor at the awards tracking website GoldDerby.com. “We were not expecting it to get that many nominations.”
